quick hack to get the false color component from Honeybee Legacy working with radiance 5.3
Everything works almost the same, just a couple of changes on the batch file command.
Before that, to get around compatibility checks in the Honeybee+ component go ahead and change line 137 from:
if not os.path.isfile(hb_RADPath + “\falsecolor2.exe”):
if not os.path.isfile(hb_RADPath + “\falsecolor.exe”):
line 162 change into : “SET PATH=%PATH%;” + hb_RADPath + “\n”
between lines 163 and 174, when defining “batchStr_body”, just change every call to “falsecolor2” into “falsecolor”
get rid of legend position flag , line 175 to 177 ish. I think -lp may be gone in the new falsecolor.exe.
around line 185, have batchStr as follows (get rid of the “z” flag):
batchStr = batchStr_head + batchStr_body + " > " + outputFile + “\nexit”
auto scaling is not working for me. it is supossed to have changed from -s auto to -s a but it doesn’t work in my computer. I’m having to play around with legendMax values otherwise I get a monochrome output with scale 0 -1.
Colors are different now and to use alternate schemes “-spec” becomes “’-pal” + spec or eco or hot
